Institutional Elder Neglect: Perceptions in Civil Court

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Mock juror perception of institutional elder neglect (EN-I) was investigated in a civil court context. Participants (N = 163) read a fictional EN-I civil trial summary in which the alleged victim filed a lawsuit against his/her nursing home for failure to provide adequate care. Participants either read a version in which the victim did or did not testify. Results showed that participants were more likely to rule for the victim if he/she testified, and rated the victim the most credible witness for his/her side. Results are discussed in terms of the importance of victim testimony in EN-I cases.
